Carolyn grew up knowing she wanted to be an artist and an art teacher. Luckily because of her studies at ISU she was able to realize both of those dreams. She taught art for 32 years and is now a full time jewelry artist. With her husband Stephen, Carolyn participates in juried art fairs and sells her jewelry designs during these events.
Carolyn now creates her jewelry in her studio that is just off the kitchen of her dome home. The windows look out upon the woods and wildlife that live there. Carolyn shares her studio with two helpers who keep an eye on everything and rarely get into trouble.
